Virtual Light: Exploring In-Game Photography And Photo History | Kill Screen

If you are anything like me, you had friends who linked Rainer’s “The Art of in-game Photography.” If you are anything like me, you saw many of your friends duke it out on Facebook and Twitter over whether or not this was a legitimate art — whether it was even photography.

Library of Babel

The Library of Babel is a place for scholars to do research, for artists and writers to seek inspiration, for anyone with curiosity or a sense of humor to reflect on the weirdness of existence - in short, it’s just like any other library. If completed, it would contain every possible combination of 1,312,000 characters, including lower case letters, space, comma, and period. Thus, it would contain every book that ever has been written, and every book that ever could be - including every play, every song, every scientific paper, every legal decision, every constitution, every piece of scripture, and so on. At present it contains 1,024,640 volumes.

Photosurrealism | Learn V-Ray

In the first half of the 900 was born an artistic movement called Surrealism; the aim of surrealists was to paint absurd situations and concepts… in a realistic way. This ingenious combination created an alienating sensation in the observer. So I asked to myself: can I do something similar with rendering? Can I do the… Photosurrealism with V-Ray?

Google’s Street View cameras are touring museums and taking weird selfies by accident - Quartz

The curtain slips a bit in the Camera in the Mirror, a new Tumblr project by the Spanish artist Mario Santamaría that collects accidental self-portraits of Google’s hulking cameras while they go about their work. It turns out that museums have a lot of mirrors, and the cameras often photograph themselves in front of them. +

Pixel perfect: the story of eBoy | The Verge

Wedding, despite what its name may suggest, is not a very pretty part of Berlin. It’s drab, seedy, and has long been among the city’s poorest areas. Today, it’s home to a large immigrant population, mostly Turks, as evidenced by the kebab houses and hookah bars that line its gray streets.

Lost Warhol originals extracted from decaying Amiga floppies - Boing Boing

Warhol created the works with Graphicraft, and the disks needed a lot of love and coaxing to get the files off them (to my mind, the story of the technical heroics is a lot more interesting than the pictures, but I'm not much of a Warhol fan).

Manipulative cherry blossoms: Okurie by Yosuke Tan « Ebb & Flow

Cherry blossoms beckoning in a soft sepia glow… the emptiness of the space and the stillness of the air bestows the photo with comforting nostalgia.

Hester Scheurwater

The Self-obsessed photo series, which explores Hester Scheurwater's desires, obsessions and fears sparked media hype in the Netherlands. The explicit imagery shocked many and fueled debate on the sexualization of society. But the editor of Scheurwater’s first book of photography, SHOOTING BACK, defends her work. Zurich-based curator, writer and contemporary photography specialist Walter Keller compares it to Rober Mapplethorpe’s sexually-charged imagery or Francesca Woodman’s erotic mise-en-scene.”Scheurwater’s visual self-explorations extend the boundaries of another main topic in art history and photography – the pose. But in her pictures, model and artist are one,” says Keller. “Yes, this is sexually explicit work, but even more, it is a curious and smart research about herself, where the artist looks at herself from both sides of the mirror.” www.hesterscheurwater.com All images on this website are copyright protected.

Border Land - Alternative Ways of Mapping Jerusalem (2012) - YouTube

Cartographic maps are to Ariane Littman the raw material, the content, and the inspiration of her artwork. The field, which she encounters as a freelance news photographer during the years 2005-2008, becomes the physical space where reality is processed and later projected into new imaginary spaces in her studio. There, she can alter the reality of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by removing borders and separation walls, boldly deconstructing the hegemonic power inscribed on the maps. Dwelling within competitive narratives Littman proposes, in her performance-video works, a critical reading of maps in which her body becomes the very site of an embodied cartography where geographic and artistic boundaries collapse. This movie reviews Ariane's inventive uses of maps as it follows her to the edge of the city of Jerusalem in her perambulatory routes triggered by the Second Intifada, in a quest to transcend borders and fear. At the end of her peregrinations in the conflicting spaces of Border Land, Ariane, longing for healing, projects herself into the new fictional spaces of Wounded Land. There in a Sisyphean process, she bandages and sews with a green thread the collective wound that runs through the geographic and human landscape of the Holy Land.

'Kunisada Eclipsed', Masami Teraoka | Tate

Japanese-born Masami Teraoka combines the influences of traditional Japanese art forms and American Pop art, exploiting the cultural and temporal disparities between the traditional style and the contemporary issues and ideas which form his subject matter. After training with traditional Japanese masters, Teraoka moved to Los Angeles to study Western art in 1961. From the 1970s, he began painting watercolours, and later prints, which mimicked the appearance of ukiyo-e, Japanese woodblock prints of the Edo Period

Mutsugoto is an interactive installation that invites couples to experience an intimate communication over a distance. Begin by laying on the bed and wearing the special ring.  As you relax and think about your partner, gently move your hand around your body. These movements are traced on your own body as well as your partner laying in the other bed. Twinkling spots give a hint of where your partner is drawing.  If you follow your partner’s movements and your strokes cross, the lines will react with each other and reflect your synchrony.

Suzuka Tetsuo | Japanology Series

Japanology, set in a land where fortress-like skyscrapers jostle Edo-era relics, is a kaleidoscope of timespace shards, sometimes incongruent and at the same time in unique symphony with each other. All seven pieces in the series strive for a prismatic effect through application of wa - a uniquely Japanese approach to harmony.

Simon Beck: Artist creates giant 'crop circles' in the snow by painstakingly walking around for 10 hours at a time | Mail Online

These snowy 'crop circles' look like they took ages to create. No chance, then, that the imprints were made by alien lifeforms leaving behind remarkable patterns for us to gaze at. Instead, they are the work of a lone artist who has spent up to ten hours a day trudging around a French ski resort. The intricate patterns are huge - some span the equivalent size of six football pitches.

MENG Jin | 孟瑾 | M97 Gallery | Shanghai, China | Contemporary & Fine Art Photography Gallery

Partners Meng Jin and Fang Er’s first collaborative photography project, Love Hotel explores the two artists’ ongoing interest in urban life, architecture, memory and found objects, and the inter-relationship between physical buildings, objects and their social context. The couple worked on-site within the framework of 3-hour ’rest’ periods in various ’short-stay’ hotels creating improvised, spontaneous sculpture works with the existing objects found in the rented love hotel rooms. Slightly amorphous structures, the rearranged inanimate objects hint at entangled anthropomorphic creations in this fantasy space devoid of actual human presence.
